there's no problem with it. you can hear it because of your intake. Before my intake installation i couldn't hear anything, now it makes like a ''Tssss'' noise when u turn the wheel, dont worry its normal and it wont damage anything. :thumbsup:
oh, bc engine load?
I'd check the psf asap. that isn't good
Its perfectly normal because by turning the wheels (especially when standing still) is putting a load on the engine and PS pump. Dont worry about it.
its at max level...
Then its just engine load, nothing to worry about
